A domestic knowledge-based company active in the medicinal plant sector has started the export of herbal extracts.
Ariana Phytochemistry of Tirazis Company has exported davanone, which is extracted from herbs used in food production, to Japan, the news portal of the Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology reported. 
Medicinal plant extraction is a process of separating active plant materials or secondary metabolites such as alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenes, saponins, steroids and glycosides from inert or inactive material using an appropriate solvent and standard extraction procedure. “The company has patented the materials extracted from pomegranate skin and rosemary plants, which are used to produce functional foods and processed meats,” the CEO of Ariana Phytochemistry of Tirazis Company. 
Simin Zamanizadeh Najjar added that processed and functional food using plant materials requires fewer preservatives, therefore they have greater health benefits.
